Awesome game. Just don't buy this Version!

V. Basciano "Rugby player", Amazon
23 January 2006
  • Summary: Basically you can purchase the Conquests version for a little more money and it's the Gold edition with a few more features. Plus if you buy this version, you will NOT be able to play multi-player with others (most people) who have the Conquests edition. Love the game, but I should have researched before buying.

Nice Game but Unnecessary Purchase

Chris, Amazon
7 February 2004
  • Summary: Civilization 3 Gold is really nothing more than the original Civilization 3 game packaged with the first expansion, Civilization: Play the World. While this may seem like a good deal, you can actually buy the second expansion in the Civilization series, Civilization: Conquests, which is included with the first expansion as well.

Civ III limitations

Amazon Customer "jlinge", Amazon
14 January 2004
  • Summary: In their attempts to improve upon Civilization II, the producers of Civilization III have proved the old adage "if it ain't broke, don't fix it." While the graphics are beautiful there are numerous features that deserve debate. For example, the number of civilization "Advances" has apparently been increased resulting in longer, sometimes seemingly interminable, pathways through different "Ages.

Don't buy Play the World!!!!

John Kolecki "-J. Ko", Amazon
8 January 2004
  • Summary: This expansion to the CIV3 world is 'okay'. I say 'okay' because in essence it is the Play the World add-on with a few extras and scenarios. I don't like paying for scenarios. There are entirely too many available online for free, some even better than those being sold in this package to justify the 30 dollar price tag. (I am incredibly grateful to Amazon for selling this mess to me on sale for $9.99) I've been duped by firaxis 3 times now.

Good, Clearly Lacking In Some Departments

B. Young, Amazon
6 April 2003
  • Summary: Civ 3 for the Mac is another edition of the highly-successful Civ series and Sid Meier deserves kudos for another strong product. Gameplay is entertaining and a clear step up in many ways from its 1996 predecessor. Civ 3 succeeds in being a strategy game, but not one so thick with the strategies that it`ll take months to master it all. That said I was disappointed by what was not present in the Civ 3: Complete package released by Aspyr.

Disappointing

M. Kei "~K~", Amazon
6 April 2003
  • Summary: Civ III is a wonderful game -- if it'll run on your Mac. The box is seriously misleading (it says it supports iMacs), with the result that I bought it for my new Intel iMac, only to have it crash and crash hard every time a city changes hands. I contacted Aspyr and they inform me that there is no fix available. I am a diehard Civ fan but I'm pretty disgusted by this.

Wish they had worked longer

Brian Duperrouzel, Amazon
4 June 2002
  • Summary: I am a big fan of the first two installments in the Civ series and was eagerly awaiting the third game. However, when I began to play the game I started to feel that it was thrown together without the needed polish to make it a good game. So many of the new features like cultural rating, trading for resources, and strategic resources, felt rather like they were from a beta version of the game.

The most dissappointing Civlization game

Charles W. Jackson "blackbird_books", Amazon
29 January 2002
  • Summary: The long awaited sequel to; perhaps, the best strategy game of all time is Civilization III. It may also be the most disappointing sequel. This review will be slanted for people who have played Civilization II. There are some new things that have improved the game, such as nationality boundaries, the idea of national patriotism, military units capable of bombarding other units or cities, and the new air missions are all improvements. Let's focus on what went wrong.

The More You Play, the Worse it Gets

David A. Lessnau, Amazon
17 November 2001
  • Summary: After about a week of playing, I'm getting more and more upset with Civ 3. Here are some of my latest gripes: - The Culture Effect seems to have problems. In one game, even though I'd built 16 out of 24 Great Wonders and 7 out of 10 Small Wonder, and my Culture, at over 40,000, was almost 3 times that of any other player (according to the Histograph), I no longer took over cities right next to me.

Eine Enttäuschung!

Christian S. "chrissi_ffm", Amazon
5 January 2004
  • Summary: Als alter Civ2-Fan, der das Spiel bis zum Abwinken gespielt hat, war ich sehr gespannt auf die Fortsetzung. Leider wurden meine Erwartungen enttäuscht. Bis auf die sehr ansehnliche Graphik, gab es keine wesentlichen Verbesserungen. Stattdessen gab es einige echt nervige Verschlechterungen. 1) Zu einem fortgeschrittenenen Zeitpunkt dauern die Runden extrem lange. Da kann man zwischendurch etliche andere Dinge erledigen.
